Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions ---Harold S. Geneen
In business, things happen. Jobs are lost, businesses restructure, and suddenly you find yourself as a "team" of 1.
Or, as a solopreneur building your business by yourself you sense feelings of being distant from others.
Does this mean you are no longer a leader? Not at all! In fact, it gives you an excellent opportunity to connect in other ways.
If you are employed by someone else, you can still demonstrate leadership qualities by:
- modeling a positive attitude throughout transitions
- taking on other job roles that may lead to future leadership promotion--though doing all the work, while admirable and sometimes necessary, should not be your goal
- expanding on ideas with upper executives to make the business more profitable or more streamlined from your experience
- ask for constructive feedback from upper management to see where you can best contribute
If you are a solopreneur:
- join or lead a networking group in your industry or with a similar entrepreneurial vision
- hire and lead motivated people ---this can also mean virtual assistants and contractors
- take some time at least once a week to step back and revisit your business vision---sometimes client needs change or an adjustment is necessary
- work with your business coach to co-create ways to address your toughest issues
- get feedback from other solopreneurs with your similar situation on social media
